33 Minaret and Wall in Morocco at Epcot in Orlando, Florida

The tower on the left at the Morocco Pavilion resembles a minaret typically located next to a mosque. In this largely Muslim country, a person named a muezzin climbs to the top platform at scheduled times, faces towards Mecca and chants the azan. This call to prayer occurs five times daily. Today, many mosques broadcast the announcement over loud speakers. The wall on the right was inspired by Kasbah des Oudaïas, a fortification built in the 12th century to protect the old city of Rabat.
